Aikido emphasizes strength in softness and does not promote overt physical force. For kids, this means that classes at Three Rivers Aikido focus on "Playground Survival": Instructors encourage children to use focus, discipline, and nonviolent conflict resolution techniques.
A number of weekly classes are held for children and adults and for beginners to those advanced in aikido practice.
The center invites interested families to its Saturday morning Aiki-Kids program at 10am for a free introductory class.
Located in Maplewood just east of the intersection between South Big Bend Boulevard and Manchester Road.
